Volunteers and Friends of GT Scholars – Event volunteers needed for 24th November!

Friday rolls over once again and I hope that you will have a great one! In this week’s newsletter, I’d like to tell you about volunteer opportunities at our next event and a new programme for young people in care!

Join our panel of judges
We are hosting a Dragon’s Den Challenge for our scholars next Saturday the 24th of November. The event will take place at Goldsmiths University in New Cross from 10am to 4pm. We are looking for volunteers to join the judging panel or just support as event volunteers. You can volunteer for the full day or for a few hours depending on your availability. Find out more about the event here and let us know if you can help.

Raising Aspirations Programme
We will be launching a programme in January 2019 that specifically focus on working with Looked After Children aged 14-16. The Raising Aspirations Programme is a collaboration between GT Scholars and the boroughs of Greenwich and Bromley. We are looking for volunteers to be part of this programme and help inspire these young people. If this sounds like something that you are interested in, please contact us and we’ll share more details about this programme with you. We’d love to hear back from you!

Nominate a scholar
Nominations for our Scholar Spotlight Series are now open. This series will focus on our top scholars and the progress they’ve made since joining the programme. If you have a scholar that you would like to nominate you can do so by getting in touch and also tell us why you’ve nominated the scholar.

GT Scholars is a not-for-profit social enterprise and registered charity. Our after-school tutoring, mentoring and enrichment programme is designed to help young people aged 11-18 achieve their academic and career aspirations. Visit our website if you’d like to know more about the GT Scholars Programme and how you can make a significant difference in young people’s lives.
